Cards close to his chest
AS Roma sporting director Monchi has laughed off rumours of a move for Leicester City’s Riyad Mahrez when asked in a media mixed zone.
The Algerian winger has been linked with a move away from the former champions during the summer window.
Roma have been one of the clubs closely linked to a move for Mahrez and it could well be the only destination at this point.
Arsenal had long been touted as a destination for the player but a move is seemingly not forthcoming.
That means that Roma could well have a straight shot at the former PFA player of the year but agreeing a deal could prove difficult.
Roma has placed several offers in for the Algerian but are yet to find the fee in which Leicester will sell at.
Meanwhile, Monchi has laughed off rumours of it being possible to seal a deal.
